Best Eroge OPs of 2012

December 31, 2012 at 12:01 am 12 comments


As is the custom around here, it’s time for a look back at the best eroge OPs of the passing year. Similar to past years, I’ve selected my favorite eroge OPs from 2012 based on song quality, visual arrangement and creativity. I’ve also included some console and all-ages titles too. They are listed by release date and you can also view the entire playlist on Youtube. My top 5 this year are Kurukuru PSS, DCIII (OP1), YukiiroSupipara and Imaimo (Grand OP). Enjoy!

    Chiccha na mune ippai ni fukuranda ♪

  • 2. nis161  |  December 31, 2012 at 1:50 am

    I think most of the songs in ryuyoku no melodia was awesome. After all…it is a certain famous band’s vocalist *cough*nanjolno*cough* and Sakakibara Yui with Elements Garden.

    appare tenka goumen matsuri

  • 5. Airetta  |  December 31, 2012 at 6:55 am

    and I always thought that Monobeno’s opening title is titled “Natsuhate” ._.

  • 6. Jin  |  December 31, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    When is Robotic;Notes an eroge? It is more towards adventure type.

  • 7. Micchi  |  December 31, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    @Oot: That’s the sole reason why that OP is on the list.

    @Jin: As mentioned in the intro paragraph, I included all-ages and console games too despite the title. There were a few which I thought warranted being included.

  • 8. Red  |  January 1, 2013 at 2:31 am

    Very nice list, Micchi. I tried a Top 10 post for the first time. It came out alright, I hope. I think I’ll do it again next year.

  • 9. johnishida  |  January 1, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    A personal favorite of 2012 was Dolphin Divers “EROIKO” such a catchy song.

  • 10. guanhian  |  January 2, 2013 at 12:00 am

    hatsuyuki, majikoi, owaru sekai and sinclient <3
    my personal favorite would be kimisora's 霜月はるか

  • 11. Maho0o  |  January 2, 2013 at 8:58 am

    Aerial and Grisaia had very good op… I know I’m being a bit chuuni, but aren’t we all deep down? :P
